Romanian Avram Iancu continues on his stage swim of 2,860 km, forecasted to last 60 days, along the Danube River through Europe.

The 41-year-old librarian from Petrosani, Transylvania started his stage swim from Donaueschingen in the Black Forest in Germany. He is now heading into Day 84 as each day is a dynamically different replication of the day before.

Day 83 on September 10th

Iancu swam 39 km today, arriving at the 158 km milestone. It was a special day for him as six people in pairs of two swam next to him on different parts of the river. “The last two were professional Romanian swimmers – it was an honour for all of us to swim together,” he said. He reached Braila, the Romanian town where the Danube becomes navigable, and saw the first ships – one of them coming from the Black Sea. “I had a very warm welcome here from the media, fans and local authorities. I am very glad for everything that is happening around this project, but also very much looking forward to reaching Sulina.

The distance traversed on the Danube from the start to Day 83: 2,681 km

The remaining distance to be swum on the Danube: 158 km
